Lipstick Collection: Pretty In Pink

The Body Shop Colour Crush 205//LimeCrime Velvetine Pink Velvet//The Body Shop Colour Crush 201//Rimmel Apocalips Apocaliptic//MAC Lickable//MAC Dynamo Lip Pencil

I didn't think I had more than three pink lipsticks when I saw this, but I guess I really am a lipstick addict! To be honest lining these up made me realise that I only ever buy raspberry pink lipsticks, I think I may need to expand my collection to different shades.



The lightest pink lipstick I have is The Body Shop's Colour Crush lipstick in 205(*). It starts of with a lot of shine which wears away to a long lasting matte finish.

Velvetines are known as being the ultimate long lasting lip product, they give such a high pigmentation and a matte finish.

The other pink Body Shop lippy I own is 201, which is a much deeper raspberry shade. Again, it goes on with a shine and wears off to a matte finish. 

When I'm feeling a bit fancy I wear Rimmel Apocalips in Apocaliptic on top of one of my other lipsticks for that glossy finish. I normally team it up with 201 or my Velvetine for the perfect pout.

When I saw MAC Lickable I couldn't wait until I had 6 empties for the Back To MAC scheme, I had to have it straight away. It's quite a thick texture but on many occasions I've gone to bed after a night out and only bothered to take off my foundation before bed, waking up with lips in perfect tact!

I never really bother with lip liners, but Jenyth gave me MACs Dynamo lip pencil, which looks quite peachy in the photo but acts as a great base for all my pink lipsticks.

Do you tend to stick to one shade of lipstick or try out many? What's your favourite lip brand?

    1. Go for a slightly lighter pink like The Body Shops Colour Crush 205, it's bright but not so deep that it's scary to wear :)

  2. amazing colours, Love them!! I would love to see some swatches of you wearing them! I am dark haired and dark eyed, so I tend to avoid any sort of eye makeup, but lean towards colours for my lips. Pink is such a diverse colour I think I forget sometimes!
